North Staffordshire adventurer Levison Wood is hoping children will join him on some of his most epic journeys across the world.
Levison, 37, who is grew up in Forsbrook, near Blythe Bridge, where his family still live, has recorded the introduction to his children’s book and has been reading passages for younger children throughout the week as a bedtime story.
The former soldier – who was a pupil at Painsley Catholic College – has been reading excerpts from his latest children’s book Incredible Journeys aimed at children aged between seven and ten.
The short videos have been shot from Levison’s London home to brighten up the day of UK schoolchildren currently on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In his first video, which you can see on here, Levison says: “In this book are lots of stories from all around the world from great adventurers and explorers – boys and girls – who have travelled to some of the most remote and incredible places on the planet.”
Levison is best known for his extended walking expeditions in Africa, Asia and Central America and his TV documentaries Walking the Nile and Walking the Himalayas.
His children’s stories are available to watch on YouTube.
